The 2022 Pittance Chamber Music SEASON VIII continues with the return to live concerts with the second program of the year taking place on Saturday, February 26, 2022, at the First United Methodist Church in Pasadena featuring the extraordinary artists from the LA Opera Orchestra. The First United Methodist Church is an iconic historic building with superior sound and plenty of space for audiences to safely distance from one another.
The Lyric Oboe features LA Opera Orchestra Principal Oboe Leslie Reed, pianist Edith Orloff, violinist Roger Wilkie and members of the LA Opera Orchestra, in a recital program of favorite works that reflect the lyric side of the oboe, ranging from the pastoral to folk traditions, including works inspired by famous paintings – projections of which will be displayed during the performance.
Among the most extraordinary musicians in the world are those you seldom see – the musicians of the Los Angeles Opera Orchestra. Founder and Artistic Director Lisa Sutton, who also happens to be the Assistant Concertmaster of the Los Angeles Opera Orchestra, formed Pittance Chamber Music in 2013 to shine the spotlight on these remarkable yet invisible artists, bringing them from the pit to the stage to perform in small ensembles, hence the name Pittance. Pittance Chamber Music utilizes a roster of artists drawn from a large pool of talent including members of the Los Angeles Opera Orchestra as well as Los Angeles Opera resident vocalists, resulting in a unique variety of repertoire not often heard together in one program.
